Now it is official - Latvia Slalom World Cup 2008, 4-6 July will be MAIN ! ! !

And, Dominik, your wish is my command !

We have planned to start GS from higher position so you will have longer distance to wave to Latvian girls ( they all really want to meet you because they still remember you from the Euros 2006 =)

We love Latvia ;)

but something is not really clear about the race locations:
are the other race (tight and special) held in Jurmala or somewhere else?

I suppose you'll have a bus to go to the Giant spot? Going from where? Riga, Jurmala...?

New and more detailed information will be aviable next week, because this Saturday indoor contest will be held in Liepaja city( there will be an Easter festival ''Eggs on air" with skateboardslalom,street and other activities) so all slalomers will gather together and make some final decisions about the World cup.


In the indoor contest in Liepaja there will be special and tight slalom so if the information don't comes too late-you are welcome;)!

The competition will start on Friday afternoon with Giant in Sigulda city, then Special also in Sigulda.
If there will be a lot of competitors we will organise bus from Riga to Sigulda on Friday.

This World cup will be the last one in Jurmala because the city council will change the surface in middle of July :(
That is the reason why only Tight slalom will be held there (on Sunday) !

Accommondation will be cheaper than Jurmala in hostel ''Laurenci'' in Sigulda (hostel homepage - www.laurenci.lv ).

We have planned to organise bus (for competitors) on Sunday morning from Sigulda to Jurmala.

We are working to improve skateboardinfo.lv homepage, more info and registration will be there after 2 weeks.

Special buss

Post by Gints Gailitis » Wed May 28, 2008 2:32 pm

Fred,

there will have a shuttle from Riga to Sigulda friday afternoon.
We are planning bus from Sigulda to Jurmala but we are
looking in our budget and looking how many participants will registerated before June 20th.
We are not planning buss from Jurmala to Sigulda sunday evening.
But for people who would like to stay in Laurenci hotel in Sigulda from sunday to monday we are recommending bus or train Jurmala - Riga - Sigulda. It is not complicated!
